A bun-free riff on one of our most-loved summer meals, these lettuce-wrapped salmon burgers are served with a tangy lemon-dill mayo.
In your bag
- 1 organic red onion
- 1 organic cucumber
- 1 teaspoon dried dill
- 1 organic lemon
- ½ teaspoon Aleppo chile flakes (optional)
- ¼ cup paleo mayo
- 2 salmon burgers (about ¼ pound each) (wild salmon - scallions - Dijon mustard - kosher salt - black pepper)
- 1 organic romaine heart
- 1 or 2 organic Roma or other tomatoes (about ¼ pound total)
Salmon burgers are just like ground beef burgers: they can be cooked to varying levels of doneness. We suggest a light pink center and opaque edges for medium-rare, but if you prefer your fish cooked all the way through, go for it.
Make It Leaner
Using the grill and omitting the oil to cook the burgers will reduce the calories in each serving by 60 and the fat by 7 grams. For an even lower-calorie meal, use the lemon-dill mayo sparingly or replace it with a squeeze of lemon juice. Reducing the mayo from 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon will save you 35 calories and 1 gram of saturated fat per serving.
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a grill. Set the salmon burgers on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked to the desired doneness, 2 to 5 minutes per side.
